critical day and chris who was not able to be there but certainly sent his wishes we've referenced this but the california port authority passed a resolution with respect to the california lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgenders group and to make sure we read the entire resolution so all the ports recreation center recognize and all our employees see how important this issue say we embrace all our employees in the diversity of our workforce so where the cappa is comprised of the seaports and dedicated to maintaining the vigorous work in colonel and the port authority
has been promoting the interest of the ports and leading the way of the cutting-edge of the operation whereas the california port authorities having is directed by the seaports to service the citizen's advisory committee and are committed to diversity in their respective administration and whereas california ports include all people regardless of race and national origin and sex and gender expression and gender, identity, or sex call orientation it's for the opportunity of men and women and the folks to advance the community whereas the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgenders contribute to the port system

san francisco host the first meeting in june it was informal but we got a great view of the port of san francisco it's maritime activities we have a fantastic tour of the northern waterfronts and one of the key thing is for port folks to learn about our businesses and the exit of our businesses the exit of our staff and to build new bridges and perhaps that have not been explored because there are certainty groups that have been able to fully fully participant we're not only to increase the visibility but to also advance the mission of all off our public ports that play such an important economic roll in california.
the second meeting i want to recognize the efforts of the port of san diego the leadership of director wayne and the staff in san diego including the president of their board bob nelson who hosted the second meeting were what we crafted a mission for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgenders diversity group and also identified key issues which have been covered by again, it bears repeating that in addition to oovrm barriers which we recognize we see this is a major opportunity to advance businesses opportunity and build stronger port. another aspect is leadership we were that the group itself is demonstrating leadership and the key focus is to continue it cult
elevate leadership so removing barriers is a way of identifying people throughout our organizations as pile drivers or crane operators or money in offices to identify those leaders and make sure we're doing everything so encourage the leadership within our industry. thank you very much for mentioning the day that we hosted for you we're delighted to show you the airport oakland international airport which i'm sure you're aware of competing the bart connecter for many people say i'm here in san francisco but oakland international is closer than our sister peninsula.

say this all the time there's nothing like getting out into the fold to see the conditions but demonstrated a lot of encourage on behalf of all of us. i guess to conclude i want to reiterate that we're focused on action. we've identified a set of altercations we intend to pursue so kudos for reading the resolution that's very important not only to say there's a resolution but actually to read it so the public can hear the commitment and the full engagement of the port commission we did that as well. our executive director chris when we visited everyone to come to oakland he said in his letter by all measures this is a
significant step to full inclusion for all members of our cappa community we are focused on the issues that prolapses are specific to the 4rb9 little bit community in our industry but the issues of diversity and inclusion are much, much boarder. we hope the potential of the lgbt group will expand its per view to all members of the port community can feel fully realized and included. thank you for the time and it's role wonderful to meet everyone here at the port of san francisco to know you closer and look forward to further collaboration >> thank you for joining us today. that conclude any report.
